Happy Hump Day!
The weather is so perfect today and I feel like Spring has finally arrived in New Jersey.
If I’m being honest, I’ve been slacking when it comes to reading this year; I’ve been so busy with work, house planning, and Matron of Honor Duties, but I need to get back into reading on a regular basis.
To help motivate me, I’m giving myself a Spring reading list.
These are all books that I currently own and have been meaning to read for a while, so now I can push myself to finally get to them!
To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before by Jenny Han
I actually just started this book and already like it a lot. I’d never heard of it until the Netflix movie came out, but it’s well-written and interesting so far. Once I finish it, I’m definitely going to check out the TV adaptation, as well as some of the other books by this author.
Sleeping Beauties by Stephen King and Owen King
Stephen King is my all-time favorite author, so I try to fit in at least one of his books every year. He wrote this one with his son, which makes me even more excited to read it. There’s also a rumor that this is being developed into a TV series, so I want to read it now and be ready to watch the show once it comes out.
The Kept Woman by Karin Slaughter
I haven’t looked into what this book is about, but judging by the sinister-looking cover I think I’m going to like it. I read a book called Pretty Girls by this same author a few years ago, and I loved it, so I’m hoping to enjoy this one just as much.
The Enchanted Hour by Megan Cox Gurden
My husband’s aunt was nice enough to get me a signed copy of this book when she went to the author’s reading a few months ago. I’ve never read anything by this author or about this particular topic before, which makes it extra exciting! I’m interested to find out more about the benefits of reading aloud and potential ways to stay focused while reading.
Small great Things by Jodi Picoult
I used to read a LOT of Jodi Picoult around the time that My Sister’s Keeper came out, but then took a break because I felt like a lot of the story lines in her books were the same. Last year, I started reading her again and was reminded of how much I enjoy her writing. I got Small Great Things as a Christmas gift last year, and I can’t wait to dive into the story!
Comment below to let me know what’s on your current list of books to read, or ones that you think I should add to my future lists!
My goal is to get through all of these before the Summer starts, but once I’m finished with this list I’ll surely be making another one.
I’m hoping that having this list will help me keep myself accountable and make sure I’m taking the time to read (when I have the time, that is).
It’s always a challenge to be able to do the things we love, but it’s so rewarding when we’re able to successfully make the time.
That’s my goal with these next few books, and I promise to share some details about them and how they are as I’m reading.
